YOUR TURN: Christy Van Kirk's take on the restaurant assault

WMC-TV General Manager Lee Meredith WMC-TV General Manager Lee Meredith

This week’s “Your Turn” segment goes to Christy Van Kirk. Van Kirk wrote in response to last week’s “Your Turn” segment about the recent assault at a local restaurant involving men dressed in drag.

Last week’s letter writer said the entire transgender community had been slandered by the news report.

Van Kirk’s rebuttal goes like this:

"There is absolutely no reason for anyone to be offended by the news story. There was not any slander towards transgender individuals. Facts were simply stated. They were dressed in drag. I for one assumed they were dressed that way for a disguise.  How else could they have been described? This woman needs to move on to the next crusade. I am sure another one will be along any second."

That’s Christy Van Kirk’s turn. Now it’s your turn. To comment on this segment or anything else, email yourturn@wmctv.com or call 800-465-1210.
